Turkey university coefficients system ended

Turkey’s Higher Education Board (YOK) has finalised the end of the unfair application system for students applying to go to university in Turkey.

The new move will see students of imam-hatip religious vocational high schools placed on a fair system with other students in Turkey when applying to go to university in Turkey. The previous system saw students from certain schools awarded higher coefficients that other students and was highly criticised as unfair and effectively blocked some students from imam-hatip schools from studying certain courses or from getting certain jobs.

The new system sees YOK award a fixed coefficient of 0.12 for the grade point average of all students applying for university. The new system has been introduced in place before the deadline for the 2012 handbook for next year’s university exam which needed to be finalised by December 15 this year.
